Back BB (Before Blogs), when I didn't know another soul who was doing this - and I didn't know WHY I was doing this - I used to lug my heavy metal tripod on trips, and do these mad fashion shoot self portraits.
This one was during a visit to an ex boyfriend in California: rented a car and drove into Joshua Tree park, every day. Set the timer and run into a the landscape.
There was one day that was the most perfect of all: one of those absolutely inspired, magical moments where you just know that every photos is perfect. When I finished the roll of slide film, just as the sun was setting, I realised that I hadn't loaded the film correctly, and I had shot all day and no one would ever see it, not even me. And I just smiled at the sky thought, how Zen is that.
Speaking of Zen: Sunday nights, BBC1, 9:00 GMT. No one has asked me to promote this, I'm just telling you because it's the best thing on TV right now. It's like you wake up and you're Italian.
